StMichael_LKM 0.04 Released

Changes in this Release Include:

Added the SHA1 checksum to complement the md5 checksumming.

There was some concern voiced that there oould possibly
be birthday attacks. By using two checksumming functions we reduce the likelyhood of such an occurance.

Added Timers

Perodicly revalidate the kernel. This is done via a Timer
and by wrapping the exit call to call the integrity checking
routines.
